|Abstract: ||INTRODUCTION- During the past two dcades, methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has become increasingly common as a source of nosocomial infection. MRSA is endemic in India and is a dangerous pathogen for Hospital Acquired Infections. In India, the isolation rate of MRSA is 20-40% and many studies have suggested an escalating rate of infections caused by this organism.
newlineAIMS AND OBJECTIVES- The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of MRSA in clinical isolates by detection of mecA and ermA gene.
newlineMATERIAL AND METHODS- A minimum of 220 MRSA isolates will be collect from clinical isolates from Clinical Microbiology Laboratory of Rama Medical CollegeHospital and Research Centre. Isolates will be processed by culture method, biochemical tests and antibiotic sensitivity will be done by using Kirby- Bauer disk diffusion methhod. The gene (mecA and ermA) will be detected by conventional PCR.
